Fake Deutsche Welle, German media, made a video about an anti-Ukrainian flash mob taking place in Poland

Information is spreading in the Kremlin media and the Russian segment of Facebook that the supposedly German media Deutsche Welle made a video about an anti-Ukrainian flash mob in Poland. Essentially, it is about the Poles who allegedly renamed Wi-Fi networks using offensive words for refugees from Ukraine. It's fake.

The case was investigated by the fact-checkers of the StopFake project. There is no video about the anti-Ukrainian flash mob in Poland on the official website and social networks of the Deutsche Welle media. Fact-checkers did not find the video either in the Polish or in the English version of the site. Moreover, the Polish edition commented that they “are not the authors of this film”.

Thus, Russian propaganda is trying to discredit the people of Poland, saying that they have a bad attitude towards Ukrainian refugees. Russian propagandists are trying to stir up conflict between Poles and Ukrainians. Earlier, Detector Media denied the fake that Poland and Lithuania approved a plan to annex the western part of Ukraine.
